    About This Project

    Bats are one of the most prolific and ecologically important groups of mammals on the planet, but they are often maligned as "flying disease vectors" due to the numerous pathogens they can carry, including rabies virus. Our project will investigate a new vaccination strategy by "dusting" several bats with the VRG oral rabies vaccine, releasing them in a colony, and then testing the colony for transmission and efficacy of the vaccine by grooming behavior.
